In my opinion this is the right fight for both men, and for fans. #3 Smith (30-14, 8-4 UFC, 4-1 at LHW) vs. #9 Teixeira (30-7, 13-5 UFC) With his win this past Saturday Glover is now on a 3 fight win streak, in which he beat 2 promising young talented light heavyweights in Krylov and Cutelaba. He has earned a big fight next, someone in the top 5. Smith is ranked #3, but still feels a bit unproven and suspect (as an elite LHW) to me. This fight could get him a win over a proven veteran, perennial contender in Glover Teixeira, establishing himself even further as a top light heavyweight, for good. Would be a fun match up where Smith brings an incredible 94% finish ratio, while Glover isn't far behind, with 83%. Both are black belts on the ground and very aggressive fighters on the feet. Maybe at UFC 245, December 14. Thoughts? Who wins?
